Event Name:Regulatory Expectations of an Institution’s Credit Process - 2-Part Webinar Series
Date:Tuesday, February 21, 2017 11:00am CST
Presented By:BankersHub
Panelist(s) Info: John Barrickman President New Horizons Financial Group
Credits:3.0 CPE Credits

The current credit environment and regulatory pressure have forced the management of many banks to reassess the bank’s credit process. Several institutions have found their credit process does not provide adequate sophistication to properly manage increasing portfolio risk. Other institutions have determined that as the bank has grown, the regulators’ expectations of required sophistication of the bank’s credit process have changed.

New tools are being developed to predict portfolio performance and proactively manage portfolio risk. These tools are being employed effectively by community banks as well as large banks to not only better manage portfolio credit risk but also build competitive advantage.

This webinar will provide participants an overview of best practices in credit risk management. Participants will be able to benchmark their institution against regulatory expectations and industry best practices.
